3rd time is a charm

I am starting to blog again just because my brain keeps spinning, and I want to write! More to come...

Grass-fed beef

So I was at Trader Joe's and I saw that they had grass-fed beef. So I bought a tiny package on to make "Sloppy Jane's" with. My husband noticed that the beef was from USA and Australia! Anyway, I had a nice conversation with the butcher, and our local health food store sells grass-fed beef from the local University farm. I mentioned to the Trader Joe's clerk the fact that their meat is from Australia. Apparently, she wasn't fazed by the news that their meat had traveled so far because she promptly recommended the lamb from New Zealand. *smile*

Procrastination never dies

I am at the working on my survey for my master's. I just received a phone message that I was missing one document for my Human Subject application - the message was left on my work phone - which I didn't check until today! So, I received it 8 days late. I just emailed off that piece tonight. I couldn't have emailed it from home tonight anyway because the power went out at 4:30 p.m. My husband was a little cranky from staying home with sick (almost well) Sean today, so I worried about leaving the family. However, they all told me I could go and I left them in the dark. I drove across town to the college library...and voila! Lights! Camera! Action! If only I could turn on the motivation. My goal is to have one night a week at the library instead of playing tennis.

Week Off

I have a week off from teaching this week, and I have so many things I want to do. The ugly things are figuring out my new prescription service since I changed my health insurance to Dale's. New forms, new websites, new usernames. I am trying to come up with "cute" passwords, like "datafun" I am hoping it will make me smile when I am logging in. I found out that my insurance covers acupunture, so I am adding that to the list of things to do! Monday and Tuesday, I will be working on my I go.
P.S. Thanks Tess for the necklace, it goes perfectly with my earrings.

tennis in the morning

I got to play tennis with Sean's class this morning. It turns out that his teacher, Mrs. Sloan used to go to the racquet club and play a lot of tennis. I walked on the courts to pick up some extra tennis balls and wished that I was playing tennis instead of working on my literature review...

12 years old

I feel like I have jumped into another world literally. Mom of a preteen. We got my son a road bike, and we went on a nice ride this afternoon. Sean is learning how to crossstitch. We just bought a craft kit yesterday at a rummage sale. (We also bought a toaster oven for $2.00)
Hope you are having a great weekend!
